Barnham Broom Golf Club Puts Focus on Female Team Members for International Women’s Day
With International Women’s Day on Friday 8th March 2019, Barnham Broom is celebrating the role of women in its Golf Club.
Often seen as a male-dominated profession, Barnham Broom shines when it comes to the role of leading ladies on the team.
The Club recently welcomed new Head of Golf, Karen Woodrow, who has a wealth of experience from her time at England Golf. Karen is already making a host of positive changes at the Club and her expertise and guidance is sure to take Barnham Broom from strength to strength.
Ellie Brown, at just 21 years old has already been a member at Barnham Broom Golf Club for over 10 years. An outstanding golfer, Ellie is currently sitting exams to qualify as a PGA Professional. When she’s not providing advice in the golf shop, she’s out on the course offering tuition for the Club’s members. She also runs junior lessons alongside PGA Professionals, Alan Hemsley and Matt Gardner.
Out on the course, Barnham Broom’s Greenkeeper, Kimberley Yeldham, is an essential part of the team; maintaining the highest standards on the golf course. A traditionally male-dominated role, Kimberley, rain or shine, bucks the trend with her enthusiasm for the game and maintaining two outstanding 18-hole golf courses.
Barnham Broom is actively working to encourage women to the game and are in the process of signing up to R&A’s Women’s Golf Charter.
On 4th June 2019, Barnham Broom will be taking part in Women’s Golf Day. A fantastic international community dedicated to engaging, empowering and supporting women through golf. In conjunction with this, the Club will be offering free taster sessions on 4th May 2019 for girls as part of the initiative Girls Golf Rocks. Further details will be available shortly on the Barnham Broom website.
